Terrifying Places In Arizona

March 13, 2021

Can I visit any abandoned places in Arizona?

It’s always quite a creepy thrill to explore abandoned places and Arizona has quite a few that you can visit. There’s a hike in the Hualapai Mountains that leads to an old abandoned Gold King Mansion which had provided accommodations for mineworkers at the time and was then abandoned in 1929 when mine operations ceased. Explore the rooms and halls of this historic building that was once teeming with life. If you want to see an old Route 66 roadside attraction that has been left to the elements, the Twin Arrow Trading Post with its massive iconic arrows sticking out of the ground is a fun stop to make. The trading post building is covered in graffiti but that will just make your photos all the more interesting. See this and others in our 10 Most Abandoned Places In Arizona post.

Are there any haunted restaurants or bars in Arizona?

Raise your hand if you want to dine with ghosts! With Jerome’s vast number of historic buildings, it’s unsurprising that the town also has a very haunted restaurant. The appropriately named Haunted Hamburger occupies the building of what was once a miners boarding house and it’s apparently haunted by several ghosts. Tools move, doors randomly shut, strange sounds can be heard, and images of ghosts will appear in photos. Casey Moore’s located in Tempe is considered one of the most haunted bars and restaurants in the country. It is said to be haunted by Casey Moore herself and guests have seen her apparition dancing around in clothes she would have worn when she was alive around the turn of the century.

What haunted hotels can I stay at in Arizona?

Aside from the hotels mentioned above, there are quite a few haunted hotels where you can spend the night. We can’t guarantee you will sleep if you choose to stay at one of them though. Head to Williams near the Grand Canyon and you will find the Grand Canyon Hotel that’s been around since 1892. This hotel showcases its historic memorabilia, has 29 uniquely themed rooms, and has several ghostly residents. You may hear whispers or a knock at the door in the middle of the night and you might see a ghost or some objects moving. Hotel Monte Vista in Flagstaff has had many reports of paranormal activity. This hotel has been around since 1927 and at least 12 different ghosts, both friendly and frightening, have been seen.
